Greetings, Calvin Coolidge High Class of 1961 classmates!

It was thrilling to see so many of our classmates at our 55-year reunion in September 2016.  We met at the beautiful home of our gracious hosts,  Dale Morton and his wife, Irma.   We enjoyed catching up with each other, eating great food, and even reliving the fun of having Good Humor frozen treats from an authentic Good Humor ice cream truck. 

If you missed the 55-year reunion, please know that we missed you, too -- and that we hope to see you next time.

Speaking of the next one, if enough of our classmates are intersted in having a 60th reunion in the fall of 2021, our faithful reunion committee will oblige!   Please keep in touch with us, especially if you move or have other contact information that has changed.

 

 

ANNOUNCEMENTS

WELCOME TO THE

CALVIN COOLIDGE HIGH SCHOOL

(Washington, D.C.)

CLASS OF 1961  WEBSITE!
 

Our 60-year reunion plans originally called for a friendly, informal luncheon on Saturday, October 23, 2021, from 12:00 noon to 3:00 PM, at Hunter's Bar & Grill in Potomac, Maryland.  We hoped that the pandemic would no longer pose a threat by then...but our hopes were dashed and our plans were changed.

By mid August 2021 we had already received payment for this luncheon from 41 classmates (plus 18 guests) -- and expected many more alums to join us. We also had received payment for the reunion booklet and interest in attending a virtual reunion via  Zoom from several classmates who were unable to attend the in-person evrnt. 

Unfortunately, Covid conditions changed for the worse this summer. The Reunion Committee reluctantly decided to postpone our celebration until next year (2022) due to an alarming increase in cases of Covid-19 (due to the Delta variant), especially among unvaccinated people, which put everyone at risk. 

Several Reunion Committee nembers -- as well as many of our other CCHS '61 classmates -- had recently expressed their reluctance to attend (or their decision not to attend) this year's reunion due to the ever-increading risk of getting or transmitting the virus.  We are all vulnerable due to our age, and many of us have underlying heath conditions making us more vulnerable.  The bottom line is that the health and welfare of our attendees are our top priorities. 

Stay tuned for updates about our revised CCHS '61 reunion plans. We now plan to offer a 61-year reunion for the Coolidge Class of 1961 in 2022.  Details will follow. Make sure we know your current email address and phone number, so we can keep you informed about reunion plans.

Please kerp in touch, update us if your contact information changes, and stay safe!

Bobby Cohen wants to get together with his CCHS 1961 classmates for lunch on October 20, 2021.   He has found a venue offering outdoor, undercover seating.  For details, contact Bobby directly at 301-385-7272 or Robert.Cohen@daycon.com.  (NOTE:  This event is not the CCHS 1961 Class 60-Year Reunion).

Dear Coolidge 1961 Classmates:

As you may already know, our 55-year reunion was held on Saturday afternoon, September 17, 2016, from 12:00 noon to 4:00 P.M., at the home of Irma & Dale Morton in Potomac, Maryland.  If was a wonderful event, full of friends reconnecting, reminiscing, and creating new memories together.

We were thrilled that 80 classmates and their guests attended our 55-year reunion. If you missed it, we want you to know that we missed you, too.  We sincerely hope that you will be able to attend our 60-year reunion -- sometime in 2021.  That's only two years from now.   Details will follow when plans have been finalized.  If you have any suggestions for our next retunion, please send them to us.

Please keep us updated with regard to your current name, maililng address, phone number(s), and email address. If you have located a "missing" classmate or learned about a deceased classmate, please let us know the details.  If you have any news that you want to share with your CCHS '61 classmates, please send it to us.  You may send an email message to cchs1961class@comcast.net or to Janet Weisblut Gritz at janetbuddyg@comcast.net.
